Abstract

The cross sections for nuclide production in thin 93Nb and natNi targets irradiated by 0.04- to 2.6-GeV protons have been measured by direct γ spectrometry using two γ spectrometers with the resolutions of 1.8 and 1.7 keV in the 60Co 1332-keV γ line. As a result, 1112 yields of radioactive residual nuclei have been obtained. The 27Al(p, x)22Na reaction has been used as a monitor reaction. The experimental data have been compared with the MCNPX (BERTINI, ISABEL), CEM03.02, INCL4.2, INCL4.5, PHITS, and CASCADE07 calculations.
